--------------------

Mabel Malet (c.1200-probably before 1248) The Malet family had been close to the kings of England, both Anglo-Saxon and Norman, since before the Norman Conquest. Mabel’s ancestor William was a companion of William the Conqueror in 1066 who is thought to have died fighting the insurgent Hereward the Wake, and one of his sisters was the legendary Lady Godiva. [11] A great landowning family in Somerset, the Malets had sometimes held high office and had sometimes been rebels, and Mabel’s father William had himself experienced these uncomfortable about-turns in fortune. Having joined the rebels in 1215 his lands were confiscated but at some point they were restored either to him or to his heirs, Mabel and her sister Helowise.

For all the revenues his marriage would have brought him, however, Hugh could not or would not pay a debt of 2000 marks payable to the Exchequer that his father-in-law had owed to king John, and there are records in the Fine Rolls of how this and other debts were offset by his service in Gascony. [12] The archives in England for this period are littered with examples of the debt-ridden life the feudal system created for military tenants and their families, and Hugh was no exception.

Mabel Malet, whose inheritance of one-third increased to one-half, married (1) Nicholas Avenal; and before November 1223 (2) Hugh de Vivonia (de Forz), baron of Chewton, co. Somerset, and Steward of Poitou, who held West Kington in 1214. They had the following children:

1. John de Vivonia, d.s.p. in 1314.

2. William de Vivonia de Fortibus, married Maud Ferrers, and died in 1259. He had four daughters, all minors at his death, as follows:

1. Joan Vivonia, married Reynold FitzPiers.

2. Sibyl Vivonia, married Guy de Roche Chinard.

3. Mabel Vivonia, married Fulk de L'Orty.

4. Cecily Vivonia, heiress to her cousin, John, married John de Beauchamp who died in 1283. In the 5th year of King Edward I. he was made Governor of the Castles of Caermerdin and Cardigan. They had a son, John de Beauchamp, who took part in the wars of Scotland and soon after, in the 14th year of King Edward II., he succeeded to the very extensive landed possessions of his mother, in cos. Dorset, Wilts, Surrey, and Cambridge. Ten years afterwards he was made Governor of the Castle of Bridgewater. He died in 1336, and was succeeded by his son, John de Beauchamp, 2nd Lord Beauchamp of Hacche. He died in 1343, having taken part in the French wars of King Edward III. He had issue.

3. Helewise Vivonia, who married Walter de Wahull, son of Saiher de Wahull, who died in 1250. His death occurred in 1269, when he was succeeded by his son, John de Wahull -------------------- Mabel Malet married Hugh de Vivonia, Sheriff of Somerset and Dorset, before 1225.
